Miss North Carolina Helps Santa

Operation Santa Claus got a big helping hand thanks to Miss North Carolina.

A crowd gathered at the Colonial Mall in Greenville Saturday night, because Miss North Carolina Elizabeth Horton decided to help out the Greenville Police and Fire Departments collect toys as part of their Operation Santa Claus drive. The raised toys will go to underprivileged children, something Miss North Carolina says is in the true spirit of the holiday.

You can still give to Operation Santa Claus at any police, fire or Pitt County Sheriff's office throughout all of Pitt County until December 20th.
